Description yba 2004-03-01 13:52:05 UTC
When Tools=>Options=>Languages=>Default Languages for Documents=>CTL is set to
"Hebrew" then please make *all* sheets of Calc default to RTL layout

I believe that the same should be the case for Arabic and Syriac

Hi Bettina,

one for you I think.

Any news with this ? The bug still exists in 2.4.0.

I think the bug as reported is wrong. It is not enough that the default CTL
language is RTL; for many Hebrew users (yours truly included), the default CTL
language is Hebrew, but the UI language is still English, the spreadsheets are
LTR by default, and that's the way we like them.

It is true that if the UI language is set to Hebrew (or any other RTL language),
the sheets should default to RTL as well. But the default CTL language is too
weak of an indication.

The bug -- whether you use yba's spec of a correct behavior or mine -- is still
present in 3.2.0 on Debian.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
